You are loved

Happy Monday! It's reveal time once again at Let's Get Sketchy. Here's my page based from this week's sketch
On the background I lightly dabbed some gesso with a sponge to give it a worn/washed out effect. Then using the "tiny circles" stencil by CW and black ink, I went around here and there. I fussy cut all the frames, adhering some with pop dots for dimension. For my leaves I used a sheet of Core'dinations cardstock, sanding them a bit to bring out the blue/gray color underneath, and keep with the "worn" feel. Finishing it off with a few splatters of acrylic paint in Fruit punch. I have used a stencil, circles, and leaves so I'm entering this in the 4th challenge at 1 2 3 Get Scrappy.
And here's this week's fabulous sketch designed by Ashley Horton
Thanks for taking the time to stop by for a peek! I know many of you will be rather busy getting things ready for Thanksgiving this Thursday, but I hope you get a chance to join us. Link your creations here. I can't wait to see your take on the sketch =)

A wonderful winter day together

Good morning all! It's time for the mid-month challenge at Boy Meets Girl. This time it's all about scrapping those girl photos using a winter color scheme, but no bright colors. And here's my inspirational page for the challenge
I used Authentique's "Glistening" papers, transparencies and burlap doily by LYB, and Dusty Attic snowflake chippies. The flowers, lace, fibers, and misc. bling are all from my stash. For a bit more texture and interest I added some masking and stamping to the background.
I based my page from this sketch I found on Pinterest
Thanks for coming by! And please check out what the rest of the DT have created to inspire you with! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Good afternoon everyone! Keeping the Best sketch #72 reveal has gone live, and I have my inspiration page to share with you.
For this page I used MME "Lost and Found 3" papers. On the background I've done some stenciling with a Crafter's Workshop stencil and heavy gesso. I used a heat gun to dry it; I wanted it to bubble up for more texture and interest. I also stenciled with a Prima chalker and a Prima stencil. Then I did a little random stamping in black with a 3rd Eye stamp "Full of words." The chipboard butterflies are from Heidi Swapp. The large white flower is from Manor House and the smaller ones are a mix of Prima and Wild Orchid crafts, as well as a few from my stash. I believe the washi tapes are from Queen and co. and Recollections.
I matted the top photo with pop dots for dimension, then wrapped the photos together with string for the November challenge at Inkido.
And here's the fantastic new sketch
I hope you get a chance to join us. Thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate your time and lovely comments.
